This double cream cheese has a fresh mushroom aroma, combined with the taste of goat’s milk and cream. Sœur Angèle , under its white and fluffy rind has a melt-in-your mouth to runny texture, with a very soft core. The mushroom aroma of the rind complements the creamy and buttery taste.

Le Fou du Roy

  • Texture: Semi-soft

During the ripening process, its pinkish-orange rind is smeared with grayish-white penicillium. Le Fou Du Roi offers a creamy flavour with buttery, grassy and nutty aroma. The interior has a supple, melt-in-your-mouth texture with aromas of butter, peanuts, hay and a touch of farm goodness.

From la fromagerie LE FROMAGE AU VILLAGE in Lorrainville, Québec

Le Cru du Clocher reserve 2 years

  • Type of milk: raw cow’s milk
  • Texture: firm

 This 2 year Cru du Clocher still has its creamy texture, but it also has more pronounced flavours. This cheese has developed a bite and it is well balanced with the milky, smooth cheddar flavour. Le Cru du Clocher has a marvellous taste that is reminiscent of Cheddars made fifty years ago, when there was a cheese maker in every village.
